Nationwide — Multi-Grammy winning rapper and producer Kanye West is making headlines again for what some people are calling strange behavior. He has posted a series of messages on his Twitter account announcing that he has $53 million in personal debt, and that he wants Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to invest $1 billion in his ideas. Within his tweets, he is also declaring himself as the “greatest living artist” and “greatest artist of all time.”
“I write this to you my brothers while still 53 million dollars in personal debt… Please pray we overcome… This is my true heart…”
Then the very next day, he tweeted again, not just to Mark Zuckerberg, but also to Larry Page, co-founder and chief executive of Google:
“All you dudes in San Fran play rap music in your homes but never help the real artists…”
Then, he tweeted to all his fans and followers:
“World, please tweet, FaceTime, Facebook, instagram, whatever you gotta do to get Mark to support me…”
West, however, never did actually reveal what he would use the $1 billion dollar investment for. But this isn’t the first time that he’s complained about difficulty in getting others to invest in his music projects.
However, despite his supposed financial woes, he was able to release his much anticipated new album, “The Life of Pablo,” through Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service this past weekend. He even performed two of his newest songs on the most recent episode of “Saturday Night Live.”
